This gentleman, CD, is in desperate need of a specialised hybrid mattress as he suffers from Lupus. He is in a lot of pain for the majority of time and is confined to bed for days at a time. This type of bed will support his joints and muscles and will be of enormous help to him and make a huge difference to his health. If you can offer assistance CD will be extremely grateful. Thank you.
This lady in her early 60s, with significant mobility problems, has been struggling to live on benefits, whilst also trying to support an adult child and grandchild. Her debts have become overwhelming and she is now simply unable to manage her finances under the weight of all this. A Debt Relief Order would help her to clear her existing debts and give her hope of managing her budget going forwards.
This gentleman has come such a long way on his journey. Last year he tried to take his own life, since this episode he has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and now has lots of support packages in place. He has recently been drawing and painting a lot and has done a few craft fairs, which has been really positive for him, and he is going to rent a shop in the local area to sell his art work. He is currently networking with his phone, but a computer would be the ultimate perfect end for this gentleman.
L has requested help to buy a second hand mobility scooter. She is a single mother to 4 boys all in nursery or primary school and she needs help to get them to get around. L has a bone disorder and finds walking incredibly painful and is not able to walk very far at all. She is in receipt of universal credits and personal independent payment benefit but will struggle to pay in full herself. If you are able to help this family I know she would be grateful.
E has long term health issues. Due to her physical issues, she's unable to get out of her home as she is unable to get her mobility scooter in and out of her home without assistance from neighbours. Due to location of the property a ramp is unable to be fitted and E would like to stay in the area where she has local support. E would benefit from having a small garden shed outside (£145) where she can store her scooter, as this would enable her to live more independently. Could you help?
D's brother has been in prison for several years and has only had one family visit as he was imprisoned a long way from family. He has recently been transferred to a closer prison, which means it is now possible for D and the family to visit. D's 90 year mother is blind and D herself is disabled and on a low income and between them they cannot afford to pay for transport or petrol for the prison visit. There is no other means of income and D is reluctant to take out a loan that they cannot repay. Please could you help D afford a couple of visits to her brother?
This lady has walking disability due to a poor hip. Last year she contracted pneumonia which has left her with terrible breathing problems. A few weeks ago her house flooded from the boiler in the loft, which ruined her bedroom and downstairs carpet. The carpets were removed and she managed to get a large rug for the lounge but is desperate for a bedroom carpet before winter. Please could you support this lady again to have a decent, warm bedroom? Thank you.
F is a single Mother of three children. Her oldest daughter, N, has a congenital heart condition and is recovering from open heart surgery and has suffered a post-op infection. F has applied for Personal Independence Payment but there is a 6-8 week wait for their decision. F recently took in her pregnant cousin and three young children, which is placing a strain on F being able to afford household expenses. F’s cousin is awaiting a benefit’s decision so it is up to F to support the entire family, which has been such a financial burden. F had some savings but they are now all gone. Support in paying for the household bills and petrol for the car would make such a difference to this struggling family.
This gentleman is disabled and relies on a mobility scooter to get around. A fault developed with the machine that has been expensive to repair. At the same time his fridge freezer broke down and he has been left with no funds to replace it. He relies on both the scooter and the freezer for his independence to shop economically and cook and store meals. He lost all he had recently cooked so is really struggling with having to shop every day. A freezer would restore his independence again.
We met J through our foodbank as he is a regular user. He explained to us that his mum has Alzheimer's and is currently in hospital. He is seeking help to buy a mobile phone, as the hospital won't let the mother go home until the care team have a mobile number they can contact him on, as he is the designated carer for his mum. Your support to buy a phone would be so appreciated. Thank you.
Mr A is an asylum seeker and doesn't have sufficient funds due to his case meaning that he is unable to work. He has a 6 year old boy and a 5 year old girl who is disabled. Mr A is in need of a bike for his son since his school is located further away and he is also requesting as pushchair for his daughter since her old one broke and as you can imagine, life without a functioning pushchair for a disabled person can be more difficult. Thank you so much for your help and support with Mr A
